Jen Shyu's solo performance — that of a woman living simultaneously in multiple cultures and "projecting her ancestry" through contemporary monologue — reveals a personal journey of loss and redemption made universal through the exploration of losses that plagues our modern world: Loss of tradition, habitat and public spaces. Sonic, visual and visceral rites and reflections are discovered by pilgrimage through Taiwan, East Timor, Indonesia, Vietnam and South Korea.

Renowned Indonesian film and stage director Garin Nugroho directs "Solo Rites: Seven Breaths," infusing his distinctive vision for celebrating the exhilarating and sacred into the work.
